Now unless you know different, "Carefully selected" to me means, the spectators would have similar viewing facilities and layout. Having been to Epsom and Yarmouth race courses several times and my father watching a lot of horse racing on TV, horse racing tracks have very similar arrangements for spectating. I have never come across another sport with a similar layout or arrangement for spectators. So whatever they would learn from using Glorious Goodwood as a pilot, would only be applicable to another race course or meeting, not another sport.

Or just watch both at the same time.
I will have itv4 on the main tv and my son will have F1 on his laptop or his gaming TV at the other end of the room. I will probably have TSL on my laptop.

Any meaningful conclusions from first practice?

Top 5 entirely predictable, looking forward to all 5 drivers competing for the title this season

BTC right on the pace of those as well

Hyundai's in 9th and 12th is a good early showing.

Moffat will be disapointed to be so far off Sutton's pace. I'm guessing there must be other factors there

The usual suspects at the back

Aye, still feel the lack of a BTCC F1 support race is a massive lost opportunity, especially as the BTCC doesn’t run on the Silverstone GP circuit. I can understand the contractual problems with ITV covering the other races but I’m sure something could be sorted out. Gow always seemed keen but the teams less so.

And now we’re not going to run on the South circuit or whatever that configuration of Silverstone is called, so another missed opportunity there

Interesting speed trap figures from FP1. Sutton is way ahead of anyone else through the Craners.

Looks like Andy Neate will be giving Team HARD someone to race at least.

Do you mean because his time is less than 0.5secs behind one of his team mates, quicker than Moffat and right behind two of the FK8s?

Don't particularly rate Jackson either, but half a second is an enormous gap round a track like Donington National.

Half a second covers 3rd to 19th. The 330 BMW seems to be in a class of it's own again this year.

Moffat went almost a second quicker in the previous session, so clearly something affected his time.

I'm not saying Neate won't be at the back, but I wouldn't base that assumption on a time from FP sessions.

Half a second covers 1st to 4th, Crees was also nearly a second quicker in FP1.

The truth is, we do not know whether the times were with / without ballast, new / scrubbed tyres, what set up they were on, what testing schedule they were in or even if the times were traffic affected.
